The IKEA x Let’s Go Zero Competition gives schools the chance to kickstart brilliant green projects that cut waste, nurture nature or bring climate learning to life.

The furniture giant IKEA and schools zero carbon campaign have joined forces to help schools create projects that inspire students and the wider community, and shows how climate action is inclusive and fun.

Our winning schools were awarded one of three sustainability product bundles: materials to create a swap shop, an outdoor learning area, or sustainability hub – an indoor space for learning about climate issues.

To win, schools shared a short video (no more than one minute 30 seconds) featuring pupils and teachers, telling judges why they should win the competition and which bundle they’d like. The videos explained the environmental work schools had already done, a little about the students who would use the space, and how the prize would bring positive change to the school and community. 

Applications are now closed.

“These fantastic prizes will help schools to be more sustainable – whether that’s through re-using uniforms or enabling outdoor learning. The bundles aim to make taking action practical and easy, and encourage positive behaviour change amongst students, staff and the wider community.  

“We are excited to see the sustainability work schools are already doing and can’t wait for the competition to kick off!” 

Alison Lasenby, Let’s Go Zero Programme Officer

The IKEA and Let’s Go Zero Competition shares the message about schools needing to be more sustainable – whether reducing emissions or increasing biodiversity. 

It’s part of a wider drive to unite communities in doing their bit to fight climate change. Let’s Go Zero is the campaign uniting all 32,000  UK schools to become zero carbon by 2030. 

Each year four schools from across the UK receive one of the IKEA sustainability product bundles up to the value of £1,500 for their project.
